"This previously unseen photograph of The Beatles in Knole Park, Sevenoaks was taken during the filming of a promo for Penny Lane. Jane came across the band in the park by chance as she walked her dog. She returned to the house to get a camera but only had colour cibachrome film. Although these photographs were never officially published by The Observer colour magazine, they were kept on file in case they were ever required."

ROBERT RUBBISH

"A young mod fresh in town finds himself in a subterranean night club in old soho with a very curious clientele. As the night develops, he meets a ‘lady' called Lola... nothing is what it seems, and he falls in love for the first time with a woman who's really a man. This artwork is inspired by The Kinks song 'Lola'."

"My plastic people. There is a cultural aspect in them... They sort of represent the people from the country they were taken. Their mood, clothes, body awareness or make up show the traditions, beliefs and even values from the places."

PAUL GORMAN

"PRINT! focuses on the resurgence of independent magazines in the digital age. Today magazines such as Burnt Roti, gal-dem, Mushpit, THIIRD, British Values, Fuck Brexit, Romp, Real Review and Homesick are anti-doctrinaire and continue to bang the drum for alternative and oppositional thought. This, we believe, is worth celebrating."

"Johnny Lydon shot at the Hordern Pavilion, Sydney December 1984. Taken before safety barriers were around separating the audience from the band. 100 punks pogoing on and around my head, and personally surreal because I got married the following morning! No real connection between the two events."

LEE SHULMAN

"I've been working as a film director for over 15 years and have always loved images that have a narrative content. I had always been a fan of colour slide photography and one day, while on Ebay, i saw a lot of 35mm Kodachrome slides for sale so i bought them. When they arrived i couldn’t believe the amazing quality i saw in these unique images. I immediately started trying to get my hands on as many slides as possible and soon realised that the value of this collective memory and its importance. These images are all completely unique, portraits of family life, often full of emotion, funny, and surprising. Little windows into our shared memories, these treasures tell the story of all our lives."

TONI HALLIDAY

"The 90’s wasn’t quite as forward thinking and empowering as it pretended to be. Lips, tits, hips, power may have been the mantra but the industry was still run by some pretty unenlightened men. I don’t think I had as tough a time as some of my female friends did but inequality was very near the surface. Flippant comments weren’t necessarily jumped on and seen as taboo like they are now. Lets just say we’ve come a long way."

NORBERT SCHOERNER

"I first went to Tokyo in 1992 on a story for the Face magazine and was instantly fascinated by the contrast between tradition, modernity, superstition and technology. It triggered something in me. I felt a deep connection to the people, their rituals and conventions, the art, the architecture... the food. In the mid 90’s I signed with an agent there, which allowed me to go back frequently, also discovering more of the country itself. That also became the foundation for an array of friendships and collaborations - which endure to this day."

ANNIE KEVANS

"I think it’s wonderful that Jean Paul Gaultier is able to honour his muses and their creativity which has inspired his own. I think we’ve all been influenced by Jean Paul Gaultier’s ideas, from his celebration of the unusual to his subverting of the familiar. The strong social message in his work is very inspiring to create works that reflect society and celebrate different types of beauty, without following the fixed standards of beauty presented by the fashion industry - all genders, body sizes, skin colours, religions and ages are included in his world.”

DUGGIE FIELDS

"By the early 1970’s I found myself sharing a flat with founder of Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett - the home/studio I’ve occupied on my own ever since. A 1960’s conversion of an Edwardian Mansion flat, there are piles of paintings stacked as well as displayed on walls. Through the years here I’ve walked miles to wash a paintbrush, the sink being in the kitchen at the furthest point away from my studio... It’s a space that reflects taste and time. I can’t think of any reason I’d want to leave."

BRIAN SANDERS

"Stanley Kubrick commissioned me to draw on set two or three days a week to prepare a portfolio on the making of '2001 a Space Odyssey'. I also worked, from information gained, to produce larger pieces back at my studio in Soho. The piece chosen is acrylic on canvas four feet wide. It features Kubrick (in blue jacket) with his camera crew. The balding man is cameraman Geoff Unsworth who directed a number of Stanley’s films. The actor in the rotating camera tube is Kier Dulea..."
